Chocolate tart

Now, I've been trying to scour the city for a good chocolate tart. I have tried City Bakery's it looked delicious but it turned out to be lacking the "wow" factor in the flavor department. I have tried La Maison du Chocolat's at a chocolate tasting with a friend; it was divine (buttery crust, perfect chocolate ganache filling) albeit very expensive. I also went to Bouchon Bakery for their chocolate tart. It was chocolatey from ganache to crust but not very sweet; it's very satisfying and pleasing but it costs $9. So, my question is where would you suggest to get a good chocolate tart without being ridiculously expensive?

    have you tried payard? they have excellent tarts. but my favorite chocolate tart is actually at the adore, on 13th street btwn university and 5th. it's a tiny french place run by japanese people, and they have amazing tarts. they vary, but the chocolate one is great and so is the mixed berry tart.
